utilities that give you more launching options than ever before.
You could even run these utilities on Apple's just-released update

Subject: [*] Digital Diary

Digital Diary allows fingertip access to the activity history and current
status of any project, with the added ability to view all activities on all
projects on any particular day. On a complex project, there could be a
dozen or more separate issues being dealt with simultaneously, each with its
own distinct status and decision stream. Digital Diary helps keep track of
all this by providing a convenient way of recording and automatically
organizing this information. While most personal information managers focus
on scheduling and contacts management, Digital Diary focuses on keeping an
organized record of your activities and decisions, allowing you quick and
easy retrieval of a project's history. Versatile report generation can
organize your data in any manner you choose. Digital Diary can even be used
as a front end to a project, thanks to user-defined links to specific
project documents that can be opened with a click of the mouse from within
Digital Diary.

Here are a Few of the Many Uses of Digital Diary:

Business, Sales, and Consulting:
Ñ Project activities and decisions
Ñ Upcoming deadlines, meetings, and appointments
Ñ Telephone and meeting records
Ñ Discussions with suppliers, consultants, clients and co-workers
Ñ Decisions made and communicated to clients, co-workers, and subordinates
Ñ Directions received from clients, authorities, and management
Ñ Decision / activity 'streams' relating to issues within a project
Academic and Scientific:
Ñ Experiment progress notes
Ñ On-going research projects
Educational:
Ñ Individual student progress diary
Home and Personal:
Ñ Personal projects and hobbies
Ñ Special events (weddings, holidays, family reunions, etc.)

Some Unsolicited Comments from Users:

"I've downloaded and am using your Digital Diary and I like it a lot."

Subject: [*] Keep-It-Up 3.1

Keep-It-Up-X version 3.1 (for MacOS X)

Keep-It-Up (KIU) is designed to keep your Macintosh server up and
running.
KIU relaunches applications that crash, it can restart the Mac on a
regular basis and it can monitor free disk space. It also
allows you to remotely manage and monitor your Mac (server) using a
webbrowser.

The primary function of KIU is to automatically relaunch applications if
for some reason they stop running (crashes, accidental quits,...).
KIU can also restart your Mac on a regular basis to reduce memory
fragmentation.

For remote management purposes, KIU has a tiny "embedded" webserver
(running on a port of your choice) that allows you to remotely
perform many functions such as: restarting the mac;
view, kill or restart running applications; launch applications;
run Applescripts; view logfiles generated by applications ...

KIU can send e-mail messages to you, actively alerting you of certain
events such as : free disk space falls below a certain
preset level; an application gets relaunched; KIU restarts the Mac ...

Keep-It-Up-X 3.1 adds 2 important new features:

* KIU automounter can automatically mount Appleshare volumes at startup
or remount AS volumes when they become unmounted.
* Virtual memory statistics help to determine if performance can be
improved by adding more RAM to your system.

KIU is $22 shareware (payment using Kagi).

I found this link that has some information on teh App you are looking for.

It mentions a web site and that one of the authors of the application is deceased.

Maybe the author of the article can provide more info.

Subject: Disk Warrior / Norton / Rewind

Can Disk Warrior / Norton / Rewind be used together, running on the same disk?

I seem to remember being told not to use Disk Warrior and Norton
together (it would be like 'crossing the streams') since they use
approaches that are odds with one another.

I imagine that the answers for System 9 and OS X would vary (I
currently have System 9 on one partition and OS X on the other).

Thanks for your help!

Subject: Flat battery & PRAM?

Hi Folks,

I was helping a friend with his iMac (sys 8.1 ) that was doing weird things.

The date and time settings kept being lost, so I assumed he needed a new
battery. But because other strange things were also happening, I tried a
few housekeeping basics, like

* switch off all but the basic Sys8 extensions

* rebuild the desktop (that went OK)

* zap the PRAM (that elicited a bomb and an error message, to wit "system
error "Finder" & bus error)

* run TechTool lite on the system files. This cleared Finder, but reported
a problem with the system file

Meanwhile, the Mac was having trouble finding the startup disk when it was
switched on. Also, some graphics were displaying with white bands across
them.

So I decided to do a clean install from the Sys8.1 CD-ROM.

Only trouble was, although the CD-ROM mounted OK when inserted, the iMac
could not find it when I attempted to use it to start up. I held down the C
key during startup, but still got the flashing ? ? ?, and eventually a boot
from the hard drive. Even when I opened the STARTUP DISK control panel and
selected the CD, the iMac still eventually booted from the hard drive.

Then I thought, "Well, if I am attempting a CLEAN install, perhaps I can do
it even if I have booted from the hard drive."

So I tried it, and it seemed to install OK.

But now I cannot boot at all, either from a CD or from the hard disk.

Could these problems be related to the flat battery?

Have I done something stupid?

Subject: No Print Problem w/OSX

I have a B&W G3 which works fine with our Epson 900 printer in OS9, but
can't see the printer in OSX. I get an error message every time I try to
print in OSX. On the other hand, two iBooks in the house have no problem
printing from OSX (other than having to bring the computers to the printer
now that we no longer have USB printer sharing). For a while I could coax
the G3 to print by deleting, and then re-adding, the EPSON printer file each
time I wanted to print. Even that workaround seems to have disappeared
following a reinstallation of OSX.

Any clues or suggestions that anyone may have will be gratefully accepted.

Alan
